Not printing black


Sounds like the print head needs alignment. If an "auto" alignment can't or won't be run, somewhere in the maintenance section of your printer driver software should be an operation for running a print head alignment and doing adjustments to get the printer aligned for clear printing. First you should check the maintenance program for "head cleaning" and run a couple of head cleaning cycles to see if a clogged head is the problem...

Manteinance program run automatically every time i try to print something


Its not maintenance programme, its print head alignment page.Once print heads are aligned successfully, you wont get this page.
Reason: One or more print head nozzles are not firing/blocked/dried up the align page will not prints properly to read result printer unable to align P.heads. You can observe the print quality, based on that replace/clean the particular print head(s) and check. Verify that each line it will read & marked as a "right tick". If its marks like "X" ensure that align page not successful.
If you are confused better replace all(four) print heads, to get out of this issue peacefully.But ensure that before replacing the print heads,all cartridge ink level should be more then 50%.
